Envy, Competition and Gender provides a unique perspective on gender difference in relation to envy and competitiveness, reframing and de-demonizing these difficult emotions and revealing their potentially creative power. Incorporating perspectives from psychology, psychiatry, social work, sociology and education, this book provides a comprehensive overview of theories and ideas on the links between gender, envy and competition. The book is divided into three sections, covering the individual and development, therapeutic implications and therapeutic applications in broader social and cultural contexts. Individual and group case stories are included throughout to illuminate discussion of crucial issues such as: • men, masculinity, and competition • gender differences in envying and being envied • the evolution of the female self • envy and generativity: owning our inner resources • envy in body transference and countertransference • envy and desire • revenge and retaliation. This interdisciplinary, multicultural and international perspective on envy and competition in relation to gender will be of great interest to all psychotherapists and related mental health professionals interested in investigating the positive potential of these powerful emotions.

Book Description: 
As powerful and power inducing emotions, desire and passion are two of the most challenging forces in one's life. The vitality they induce may be both enhancing and devastating depending on their use. Despite that following one's desire or passion is currently presented as a dream to be aimed for, both men and women suffer from either hindrance or obstruction of their desires in the course of social roles and daily life chores. This new book focuses on challenges and difficulties of gender roles in acknowledging, moreover following one’s own desires and passions while trying to understand if these powerful emotions are understood and interpreted in their own right in clinical settings.

Could envy be a secret yearning?  Should envy and rivalry only be lived in destructively? Can competition turn into a motivation for improvement? And can envy become a source of inspiration?
This book addresses  the destructive facets of envy and rivalry while at the same time exploring their endeavoring and inspirational facets.  The book discusses the psychological theories and concepts around envy and competition, the developmental and familial influences, and personal reasons.  It particularly underlines the differences in gender roles in the feeling and use and misuse of those forceful emotions.  Acquired social habits as much as conscious and unconscious defences of these strong emotions are explored in order to make them more understandable and manageable.
The author argues that instead of leading to instinctive destructiveness, the energy created by those forceful emotions could be transformed into personal development.  A road map is proposed for such a positive change.

Anger and rage are destructive and consuming emotions, not only harassing the person but damaging, at the same time, their relationships and surroundings.  Attributed gender roles play an important difference in the use, expression and impact of these forceful emotions.  Anger and rage are experienced differently by men and women: in our society,  a man’s expression of anger is regarded as forceful and “masculine,” thus it is socially encouraged; whereas, a woman openly expressing her anger is considered as losing her femininity; she is attributed with humiliating connotations.  Generally women tend to internalize their anger, mostly directing it to themselves or to their children.  Unexpressed emotions tend to accumulate in a destructive pool, and either they turn into depression or they explode in the most unexpected moments, destroyiing the person’s inner world as well as close relationships.  
This book concentrates on the different forms and reasons of anger and rage,  our learned gender roles in their expression, the many ways of expressing anger and rage, while exploring how these destructive emotions could be transformed into productive energy, sincere communication and personal change.

…and as Cinderella was running away, her shoe slipped off.  The next day, the Prince started to search for the young lady whose foot would fit in the shoe.  All the young ladies in that kingdom tried to reshape their feet for the sake of fitting in the shoe…
Well, since that day, women try hard to fit their feet in the moulds that patriarchy has designed for them while they believe that by abiding by its rules, they will become their man’s “princess”!   Meanwhile their feet ache, they limp, turn depressive but they firmly believe that they are the sole responsibles for this situation, never questioning the validity of the “shoe” (mould)… 
And men search for that woman who will fit her foot (herself) into the “shoe” (or the mould in his dreams) without ever asking himself whether a woman can be happy, peaceful, real and understanding when she ‘limps’ and ‘her feet ache constantly’…
And both are unaware of the shared pleasure when life is lived “barefoot”…
